STRENGTHS - Consistently the first defensive lineman moving at the snap, he has the initial quickness to get into gaps to disrupt plays. His initial quickness also helps him to get his hands on offensive lineman before they are set, so he can jolt them. Quick hands and long arms enable Logan to jolt and defeat offensive line run blocks and he has the burst to the ball carrier to finish the tackle. When offenses try to pull the linemen over him and he reads the play correctly, he can get inside backside "reach block," keeps blocker on his back and chases down play in pursuit. Although he lacks a variety of pass rush moves, he does flash the ability to jolt and defeat pass blocker with a quick arm-over move. .
WEAKNESSES - Other than his first step initial quickness, Logan does not display quick twitch athleticism any other time, which limits his overall production. He has a bad habit of getting upright and high when he fires off the ball and if he does not jolt man with hard punch initially, he can be tied up and eliminated from the play too easily. He does not take on in-line run blocks with base/leverage and can be ridden out of the play too easily. Lacks versatility as a pass rusher and has not real secondary pass rush moves if his initial charge is stopped. Not naturally instinctive, Logan often seems a beat late identifying the play and getting started in the direction of the ball carrier.
SUMMARY - An underclassmen who came out early for the Draft, Logan really disappointed me when I evaluated the film. Although he is consistently the first defensive linemen moving at the snap and threatens the ability to get gap penetration, too often he loses leverage while bursting off the ball, which allows offensive lineman to get their hands on him to tie up and eliminate him from the play. I find it surprising that despite being surrounded by numerous players who will be high NFL draft picks, Logan was not able to consistently defeat one on one blocks to be an impact player. Overall, I think Logan will be drafted much higher than I have him rated, but I think he is a middle round prospect who needs to improve in the areas mentioned above to become more than a backup defensive tackle.
